Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Vega was so naughty and ate your food.
My first thought after hearing about what she over-indulged in is that she has developed pancreatitis. Pancreatitis in dogs is very often directly linked to a high fat meal.
The following is a link to an in depth discussion on pancreatitis in dogs.
This condition can be very painful and can cause abnormal motility of the intestines.
The next possibility is that the high fat food was very irritating to her colon and that is what has caused the bloody diarrhea. Bloody diarrhea in dogs is caused by irritation to the colon, not a burst blood vessel like in humans.
Both of these conditions are very serious medical conditions and I would strongly consider taking her to the local animal emergency room this evening for care.
